The source of some of Italy?s best and most distinctive white wines, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is where Italian, Germanic and Slavic cultures converge. The styles of wines produced in this region of Italy’s far north-east reflect this merging of cultures. Often shortened to just ?Friuli,? the area is divided into many distinct subzones, including Friuli Grave,?Colli Orientali del Friuli,?Collio Goriziano?and Carso. The flat valley of Friuli Grave is responsible for a large proportion of the region?s wine production, particularly the approachable?Pinot grigio?and the popular?Prosecco. The best vineyard locations are often on hillsides, as in Colli Orientali del Friuli or Collio. In general, Friuli boasts an ideal climate for viticulture, with warm sunny days and chilly nights, which allow grapes to ripen slowly and evenly.
